Hope you’re feeling safe and well after the weekend and that not a single one of you went to that fucking rodeo near Bowden.
Hope you’re ready to stay up later than you’d like to watch your hockey team for about a week straight as we’ve got three 8PM MST starts on the docket against a Vancouver Canucks side that is currently sitting below the Ottawa Senators in the standings.
Here’s hoping McDavid either plays all of them and scores a billion points and sets a bunch of records OR that he plays very little in any of them and gets through the next week fully healthy and ready to pistol whip the Winnipeg Jets in the first round of the playoffs. Either way. Either way’s fine.
It’ll be a full day for you, the reader, as we’ve got the Weekly Odds, typical GAMEDAY racket, and — of course — the latest and greatest episode of our new-but-growing-every-week Copper and Blue Podcast. Get yourselves hydrated. We’ll see you later on.
